after seven days on the primal challenge i can say it has been interesting. while i eat quite well generally i have noticed that i am eating more fruits and veggies due to the removal of those little extras that invade my daily diet. that piece of banana cake or muffin with my morning coffee and a late afternoon vending machine raid when i am in slide of the post-lunch carb crash have gone.
while the scales revealed that i replaced a little weight from my low on friday i think that was mainly from my muscles refilling their depleted energy stores. i made an effort to increase my carb intake after my intense and longer runs so that i didn't inhibit my run training effort. looking in the mirror i can definitely see some changes as i am starting to lean out a little mainly in the upper body.
